NotesEdit

  • This issue marks the return of the Human Torch, Sub-Mariner and Captain America who were all last seen in 1949 when their titles were phased out.
  • The origin story that the Human Torch offers a grossly simplified and at times inaccurate account of the origins of the Human Torch and how he met and partnered with Toro. The Torch's origins depicted here state that the Torch had control over his powers right away and instantly wanted to fight crime, in direct contradiction of the origin established in Marvel Comics #1 and expanded upon in other later tales. This story also suggests that the Human Torch did not partner with Toro until 1949, and that he fought World War II and killed Hitler alone. This contradicts Toro's first appearance in Human Torch Comics #2 which most other sources have established happened in 1940. In addition, What If? #4 and other sources that recount Hitler's death in World War II clearly place the Toro being present at the time.
  • Although the characters in the Captain America story are named Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes as per the retcon from Captain America #153, these characters are really William Burnside and Jack Monroe the men who replaced the original Captain America and Bucky in the 1950s. Additionally the Red Skull depicted here is really the communist impostor Albert Malik as retconned in Captain America #155.
  • Likewise the Captain America origin story presented here is a greatly simplified retelling of the origin revealed in Captain America Comics #1. As per the retcon mentioned above, the origin story can be considered a flashback appearance of the real Steve Rogers and not William Burnside the man who posed as Steve Rogers in the 1950s.
  • A large portion of the Captain America story, "Back From the Dead" is reprinted in Captain America #155.
